American Horror Story Season 8 has enlisted Cody Fern in a key role. The Assassination of Gianni Versace breakout has joined the upcoming season of the FX anthology series–which is titled Apocalypse– in the role of Michael Langdon. Series creator Ryan Murphy made the announcement on Twitter. Fern received widespread acclaim for his role in Versace, in which he starred opposite Darren Criss, Edgar Ramirez and Penelope Cruz. He also played the lead role in the film “The Tribes of Palos Verdes” alongside Jennifer Garner and Maika Monroe. He is repped by CAA and 3 Arts Entertainment. As previously announced, “Apocalypse” will be a crossover between the American Horror Story seasons Murder House and Coven, which were the first and third seasons of the show respectively. Fans of the series will remember that Michael Langdon was the child of Tate Langdon and Vivien Harmon who was born during the events of Murder House. It was revealed in the epilogue of the season finale that Michael is in fact the Anti-Christ, which will no doubt tie in with the Apocalypse theme of the new season. We’re so excited to be working with the post production crew for another season!
The Affair has been renewed for Season 5 at Showtime, which will be the critically-acclaimed drama’s final season. The renewal comes ahead of the Season 4 finale, which will air Aug. 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The series explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together. Season 4 finds Noah (Dominic West), Helen (Maura Tierney), Alison (Ruth Wilson) and Cole (Joshua Jackson) in their own orbits, alienated from each other, spinning further and further away from where they all began. Every character is involved in a new relationship, forcing them each to decide if they’re ready and willing to leave the past behind for good. “The Affair” has received widespread acclaim since its debut, with the show picking up three Golden Globe awards throughout its run. That includes a win for best drama series in 2015 and best actress in a drama series for Ruth Wilson that same year. Tierney was also nominated for an Emmy for supporting actress in a drama series in 2016. We had the honor of working with the post production crew and can’t wait to check it out!
Lionsgate has released the official trailer for Summit Entertainment’s Robin Hood, its updated take on the legendary bandit of Sherwood Forest that stars Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn and Eve Hewson. From this look, the film directed by Peaky Blinders helmer Otto Bathurst dives head-first into the “steals from the rich” part of the tale with a heist/buddy-movie vibe after Robin of Loxley (Egerton), war-hardened from fighting in the Crusades, comes back home to find it rife with corruption and evil personified by the Sheriff of Nottingham (Mendelsohn). Spurred and trained by his Moorish commander Little John (Foxx) — “You were a lord, but now you get to become a thief, and I’m going to show you how,” he tells Robin — they form a band of outlaws and plan an epic heist of the royal treasury in a revolt against the corrupt British crown. We had the honor of working with the post production crew and can’t wait to check it out! The film hits theaters November 21, 2018, the day before Thanksgiving. See the trailer below!

John Wick is going to war. If you saw how John Wick: Chapter 2 ended, you probably already knew that, but the official title for John Wick 3 wants you to know for sure. According to the folks at ComingSoon, Keanu Reeves confirmed that the upcoming sequel is called John Wick 3: Parabellum. So what does Parabellum refer to? Reeves told the outlet that the subtitle means “Prepare for war.” He explained, ” It’s part of that famous sentence, ‘Si vis pacem, para bellum,’ which translates as, ‘If you want peace, prepare for war.’” That sounds about right for a character like Wick, who just wanted to live the quiet life until some mobster punks stole his car and killed his dog, reawakening the Baba yaga and sending the legendary assassin on a quest for vengeance that got him tangled up in the criminal underworld all over again. Parabellum will also see Wick teaming up with a mysterious new character called Sofia, played by Halle Berry. “John Wick is fighting for his life and thinks that Halle Berry’s character has some information for him,” Reeves said. “They have a past, and they get involved with The High Table, this kind of overlording entity.” We are so lucky to be working with the post production team again, and we look forward to checking out the sequel!
